    Among the stones of the Roman Forum is a hidden complex of apartments and villas from the second century AD called Case Romane del Celio. Experience this extraordinary collection of living spaces, which was transformed into an exclusive museum after its excavation. Thanks to this fascinating time capsule, you can relive the everyday life of the ancient Romans. Marvel at the extraordinary frescoes and listen to the exciting explanations of their guides.

    Then you'll continue to the Colosseum, where you can avoid the long queues and enjoy a comprehensive tour through the first and second floors. Learn more about the history of the building and the wild spectacles that have entertained thousands of bloodthirsty spectators.

    Afterwards you return to the forum to visit the old temples and government buildings. Follow the streets that existed before the birth of Christ and see an old sewer system that is still in use today. Finally, drive up Palatine hill to explore the remains of some of the most opulent villas in ancient Rome. From here you also have a breathtaking view over the entire forum.
